WineBot (http://winebot.sandbox.cz) is a sort of lightweight
implementation of some core thoughts, but with command line based
interface and less dependencies. Both projects share some core ideas and
data file formats. WineBot goals are much smaller in scope than
Wine-Doors ones, going in smaller steps.
The main goal is to replace obsolete and almost unmaintainable winetools
Main idea is to make repositories of supported application packages,
both installed from CD, HDD or downloaded from net.
For example to install Oblivion by placing CD into tray and entering
winebot install tes_oblivion-1.1.511uk
Or in case of Wine-Doors - insert CD, run wine-doors, select Games
repository, click to add Oblivion to install queue.
Given list of manual steps required to install Oblivion
this can be automated easily and comfort would be similar to using Loki
